About Dental Inlays and Onlays
Dental inlays are tooth-colored material made from ceramic/porcelain or another special dental composite. They are great for replacing unattractive fillings that were common a few years ago, such as the grey metal ones. These inlays are bonded to the teeth. They improve the strength of the tooth and seal the inlay to the tooth.
Onlays go inside of the tooth to replace the cusps. A few years ago, they were made of gold, but patients did not desire them. They wanted something that was tooth-colored. Now, they are made from ceramic/porcelain, which makes them much more natural-looking. Onlays are also bonded to the tooth, which improves the strength of teeth.
Since it can be difficult to know if a patient should have inlays or onlays vs. crowns or caps, it's always good to reach out to your dentist in Pasadena. With a consultation, you will be able to know if this is the right option for you.
If the dentist decides it is not the right option, there are other restorative dental options available.
